He also supervised the third edition (1893) of Otto Jahn's "Persii, Juvenalis, Sulpiciae saturae".
Ennius continued the nascent literary tradition by writing praetextae, tragedies, and palliatae, as well as his most famous work, a historic epic called the "Annales". Other minor works include the "Epicharmus", the "Euhemerus", the "Hedyphagetica", and "Saturae".

The remains of six books of "Saturae" show a considerable variety of metres. There are signs that Ennius varied the metre sometimes even within a composition. A frequent theme was the social life of Ennius himself and his upper-class Roman friends and their intellectual conversation.
Others derive the name of the god from the word "ridiculus", signifying a thing to be laughed at. Hannibal's failure to enter Rome made him an object of scorn for the Romans, and in order to perpetuate his shame, they erected a temple to the god of laughter. Varro give the god the epithet "Tutanus" (protector), having him speak in his "Saturae Menippeae" ("Hercules tuam fidem", XXXIX):
The second provision of the "Lex Caecilia Didia" forbade "leges saturae", "stuffed" laws, which were statutes dealing with heterogeneous subject matters. This meant that in a single Roman bill, there could not be a collection of unrelated measures — what might in modern terms be called omnibus bills. Cicero gave an interpretation of the law in his "Oratio de domo sua" ("Speech concerning His House") after his return from exile: "What other force, what other meaning, I should like to know, has the Caecilian and Didian law, except this; that the people are not to be forced in consequence of many different things being joined in one complicated bill."
According to Varro, Saturn's name was derived from "satu", meaning "sowing". Even though this etymology looks implausible on linguistic grounds (for the long quantity of the "a" in "Sāturnus" and also because of the epigraphically attested form "Saeturnus") nevertheless it does reflect an original feature of the god. A more probable etymology connects the name with Etruscan god "Satre" and placenames such as "Satria", an ancient town of Latium, and "Saturae palus", a marsh also in Latium. This root may be related to Latin phytonym "satureia". Another epithet, variably "Sterculius", "Stercutus", and "Sterces", referred to his agricultural functions; this derives from "stercus", "dung" or "manure", referring to re-emerge from death to life. Agriculture was important to Roman identity, and Saturn was a part of archaic Roman religion and ethnic identity. His name appears in the ancient hymn of the Salian priests, and his temple was the oldest known to have been recorded by the pontiffs.
The remains of Lucilius extend to about eleven hundred, mostly unconnected lines, most of them preserved by late grammarians, as illustrative of peculiar verbal usages. He was, for his time, a voluminous as well as a very discursive writer. He left behind him thirty books of satires, and there is reason to believe that each book, like the books of Horace and Juvenal, was composed of different pieces. The order in which they were known to the grammarians was not that in which they were written. The earliest in order of composition were probably those numbered from xxvi. to xxix., which were written in the trochaic and iambic metres that had been employed by Ennius and Pacuvius in their "Saturae".
His works (written in a mixture of prose and verse) are all lost. He discussed serious subjects in a spirit of ridicule, and especially delighted in attacking the Epicureans and Stoics. Strabo and Stephanus call him the "earnest-jester" (, "spoudogeloios"). His writings exercised considerable influence upon later literature, and the Menippean satire genre is named after him. Although the writings of Menippus no longer survive, there are some fragments of Varro's "Saturae Menippeae", which were written in imitation of Menippus. One of the dialogues attributed to Lucian, his avowed imitator, who frequently mentions him, is called "Menippus", but since the sub-title ("The Oracle of the Dead") resembles that of a work ascribed to Menippus by Diogenes Laërtius, it has been suggested that it is imitated from his "Necromancy".
